AAPS Awards: Nominate Your Deserving Colleagues

The scientific community benefits from collaboration between scientists- nominate those who are working next to you

The AAPS awards programs are designed to encourage and recognize scientists and graduate students working above and beyond the call of duty, from early career scientists to experienced scientists, in academia, industry and government. Some of the awards available are the Dale E. Wurster Award in Pharmaceutics, Fellowships, and the Distinguished Pharmaceutical Scientist Award. These awards allow researchers to continue their work due to the support and generosity of others in their field.

AAPS Fellowships

AAPS has a strong commitment to the recognition of select AAPS members through their designation as Fellow. The primary criterion for election to Fellow status is professional excellence in the fields relevant to the mission of AAPS. Election to Fellow status will be based on the individual's documented sustained level of superior and distinguished professional achievement and contributions in a relevant field.

AAPS is proud to have sponsored, with its members, many Fellows and awardees over the years.
